This time last year I was nervously preparing for my son starting School. His first year has flown and I am so pleased he has settled in extremely well. This September sees one of my mindees start School too.
One of the things I did, both as a Mum and a Childminder, was to read lots of books with them about starting School. Children can identify with characters in the book and have the chance to explore different feelings and emotions they may feel when they first start.
Here at Aston Childcare our favourites are:
- Topsy and Tim Start School by Jean and Gareth Adamson
- Starting School by Janet and Allan Ahlberg
- Goat goes to Playgroup by Julia Donaldson
- Starting School by Franzeska G. Ewart
